OVERVIEW:

This observational documentary follows Stephanie, a Youtube personality after she is diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the age of 21. After the cancer is found in her leg, the doctors are not able to remove the tumor in time. Her leg is amputated and the cancer was contained in her bones, but later it spreads to Stephanie’s lungs.

My Fight not only presents the reality of a cancer victim but also how the demands of this grueling illness can affect and impact every member of the family. As Stephanie begins to share her experience through her Youtube channel, we see how the Ramirez family unites to battle cancer without health insurance or many financial resources, we see how the power of love can create stronger bonds between individuals.

As the story moves forward, the evolution of the human spirit shines through the many difficult obstacles encountered by this brave young lady. The film also introduces a team of experts and doctors who help inform the viewers about osteosarcoma and the world of prosthetics.

SYNOPSIS:

My Fight tells the story of Stephanie Ramirez, a young Youtube personality who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma cancer. This documentary brings attention to a difficult decision-making process that most of us would prefer not to think about. My Fight presents these implications in the flesh as we follow Stephanie, through this journey. It is a raw view into the world of a woman not only coping with cancer at a very young age but also learning to accept her new body image after losing a limb to this illness.

At the age of 21, Stephanie was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. After a painful round of chemotherapy, Stephanie discovered her battle was not over and her left leg was amputated to save her life.

The film follows Stephanie for one year as her world is turned upside-down and she faces the possibility of death in her early twenties. Through her experience, we see how young individuals handle everyday pressures and how the human spirit evolves when it is pushed into extreme circumstances in life.

My Fight also presents how the demands of this grueling illness can affect and impact every member of the family. As the Ramirez family unites to battle cancer without health insurance or many financial resources, we see how the power of love can create stronger bonds between individuals.
